Copying and pasting the contents of a FireMonkey TBitmap

Delphi Haven – One of the various things not yet implemented in FireMonkey is TClipboard. In FMX.Platform you can find routines for getting and setting text on the clipboard (using Variant arguments – I’ve no idea either), but nothing beyond that.

A look at the 3D side of FireMonkey

x64 assembler fun-facts

The Oracle at Delphi – While implementing the x64 built-in assembler for Delphi 64bit, I got to “know” the AMD64/EM64T architecture a lot more. The good thing about the x64 architecture is that it really builds on the existing instruction format and design. However, unlike the move from 16bit to 32bit where most existing ...

Testing Cross Cutting Concerns

Craig Stuntz's Weblog – So imagine you’ve been asked to implement the following requirement: When a to-do list item is marked as complete, the CompletedOn date time property shall be set to the current time.
